Why You Should Book A Pre-Purchase Inspection
Buying a used car can be a nerve-wracking experience, there is so much to take into consideration. The price, the condition, the warranty (or lack of), are all points which can leave your head spinning, especially if you don’t have a working knowledge of cars.
So what are you to do when you really like the car but don’t know what to look out for before buying? Luckily for you, many auto repair centers, including Pacific Motor Service, offer a service called a pre-purchase inspection. This type of service is an in-depth examination of your chosen vehicle performed by an expert technician before the sale is finalized, the technician will inspect the vehicle looking for any potential issues which could pose a risk to your safety or cost you an exorbitant amount of money further down the line. How much of the vehicle is inspected and how much the pre-purchase inspection will cost depending on the level of inspection you request, in the most basic level of inspection the vehicle will be examined to identify any leaks and damaged parts. A more thorough inspection can be requested which will also look at how the engine performs as well as the completion of various computer diagnostics.
